Hard­core fans of Ge­orge RR Martin’s fan­tasy book se­ries will no­tice a few dif­fer­ences be­tween the nov­els and the hit HBO show, which started in 2011.

Se­ries three sees Robb’s young wife Tal­isa stabbed to death through her stom­ach when she is preg­nant. But in the books Robb de­cides not to bring Tal­isa to the wed­ding and she sur­vives.

And Jo­jen Reed is killed off in the sea­son four fi­nale but in the books he has far more sig­nif­i­cance in the plot – which would make his death prob­lem­atic.

Mance Ray­der’s death at the stake is as writ­ten – ex­cept in the books it emerges the vic­tim was not him.
